    Sw-01? RC lunch box mini?

    https://www.tamiyausa.com/shop/110-trucks/rc-lunch-box-mini/ Sorry, well behind. Please delete. I did suggest a half size lunchbox in a thread ages ago though. Arrms have a similar chassis that runs on AA's and 4wd I mean.

    Radiolink TX/RX

    I had a stick radiolink radio. Was fine, felt cheap but it was. I had the Tf8 8channel stick. The app was in Chinese though. Lol.

    Blitzer Beetle finished!

    The Blitzer chassis is a speed demon. Mine used to pull wheelies at 40 mph. Lol until it disintegrated. Lol i almost forgot about that bit. Lol

    Tamiya konghead to Kongbox

    Buy a cheap Wt01 or wild dagger to get most of the parts for the wide suspension.

    Terra Crusher HELP

    "The truck moves but barely", mine was a bit like that, but improved after a minute of idling. ( It lacked the punch I was used to from electric) really slow take off. I spent more time cleaning it or fixing it, so it had to go., Nice truck though, just wish it was fast.

    Terra Crusher HELP

    Just sold my Terra Crusher, but it had a similar problem. Wouldn't move till engine was warm. It was really slow, noisy, dirty and dangerous for the kids so I got rid. Sorry can't help. Did feel like clutch was slipping.

    6x6 Tamiya Blackfoot? truck

    This started life as a Blackfoot 3 kit, with the intention of making it 4WD and possibly 4WS. I built it as instructed and bought the extra gearbox/ shafts/ arms/ etc to make it 4WD I then bought a 2nd hand wild dagger? roller for the steering and extra gearboxes. anyway, not so much a build thread but thought some of you might be interested.......................... The gearbox and suspension assembly is held to chassis with 4 screws( well 3 so far in this case, lol ) each side, very easy to work on. I could drill straight through and bolt it but haven't yet. It's a bit rough, first attempt at this, still has sharpie marks where I was going to remove more metal, messed up the steering servo, cut the hole too big and had to add the extra plate, not finished it off yet. I have created a weak spot where I cut past the angle to clear the standard shock tower, maybe next time, just cut it off and work round it? I have some very rough sketches of a chassis idea that I had. I did say rough lol,.. I think another gearbox could be added very easily. Tools used. Cordless drill Round file half round file 3mm drill bit. 2.4m of aluminium angle. (enough of this left to do another, possibly an 8x8) Took it out for a spin today and it drives quite well. I'd say it's better than it was 4wd. Will try and get video soon.
  16. I watched the video, you made a crucial mistake very early on, or perhaps you did it?, and I missed it?, I will check. During the unboxing and also before while showing the tyres that were bought as options, Not once did you sniff them. Everybody here sniffs the tyres when they open a new kit,,,,, Right?

    "Rolls eyes.."

    There is an ignore feature that you can use if someone's posts offend you. In that situation the person ignoring you wont see this thread, unless someone quotes you and mentions them. So who is it?. My Mrs is still ignoring me.

    WT01 Big wheel project - clodbuster tyres

    Here's another thumbs up for these tyres. I been bashing with them for 10months and they are still in very good condition. I would have to say they are my longest lasting tyre so far. The sidewalls are quite soft but I haven't glued them so maybe they will tear if I do glue them on. This is under brushless power though.
  19. OK, Maybe static models should be static. I think it would appeal more to builders though, I wouldn't buy a static kit, but,.... I would if it had a motor. and the possibility of adding RC. Scale market is big right now, show them how it's done Tamiya. Realism is not a beach buggy shell on a DT02. (I had the cowboy one), Imagine that on a proper scale chassis with floorpan detail and a 380 motor tucked inside a scale flat4.
  20. Who would prefer a scale chassis as well?, back to basics, scale model kits suitable for radio control. basically like a static kit, all the engine detail, and chassis structure/ floorpans. but with space for a motor. radio gear is so small now, compared to back in the day. Is what made their way, go back to your roots Tamiya.
  21. And all those window rubber decals. I got my Mrs to do the wr02 vw bus. Lol.

    Kyosho Big Boss

    Always liked the Vette. Surely the lunchbox would have been nearly half that price back then?
